Leading Tamil actor Arya on Monday released the much-awaited first look poster of his next film, Captain, directed by Shakti Soundar Rajan. The upcoming film produced by the actor’s The Show People in association with Think Studios is the duo's second collaboration after last year's Teddy, which was released on DisneyPlus Hotstar. This first glimpse from Arya's Captain is intriguing right from the get-go as it shows the actor alongside a creature of unknown origins, which looks to be on the lines of an alien species. Check out the interesting Captain first look below: 

Arya, who had a good 2021 with his Sarpatta Parambarai under Pa. Ranjith's direction and Aranmanai 3 with Sundar. C, will be looking to hit it big with Captain, which is expected to come out in theatres in the months ahead. Based on the first look poster that has been released, it is likely the film will include plenty of sci-fi and fantasy elements and is yet another challenging project Shakti Soundar Rajan has taken up. The hit director is known for his ambitious films among which include the zombie-horror venture Miruthan, followed by the space thriller Tik Tik Tik and last year's Teddy, which was a fantasy action adventure. It will also be interesting to witness Arya in a film like Captain as he has been expanding his palette of roles with each venture. 

Captain was launched with a formal pooja last October in Chennai and Arya had been revealed to be paired opposite Jagame Thandhiram heroine Aishwarya Lekshmi. The film also includes actress Simran playing a pivotal character, while Kavya Shetty, Thyagarajan, Harish Uthaman, Gokul, and Bharath Raj among others have been cast in major supporting roles, with Shakti Soundar Rajan once again reuniting with chart-buster composer D. Imman for the fourth consecutive time.
